Nanomaterials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory (NSCL)

Nanomaterials Synthesis and Characterisation Laboratory (NSCL) covers research on synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials, exploring how the properties of nanomaterials change with morphological features, reaction conditions and processing parameters.

The research laboratory focuses on the synthesis of nanoscale materials that can be classed into carbon and non-carbon. These materials cover zero-dimensional, one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three- dimensional nanostructures. Carbon-based materials cover carbon and graphene quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, graphene and nanographene derivatives and various hierarchical nanostructures. Non-carbon-based materials cover metals, ceramics and layered hydroxides having various functional properties such as magnetic, dielectric, and superconducting properties.

Synthesis methods that are used cover both top-down and bottom-up methods, which are mostly green and scalable. These methods include wet chemical methods (such as chemical oxidation, hydrothermal, solvothermal, sol-gel and electro-spinning processes), solid-state methods (such as grinding, milling and sintering), as well as chemical vapour deposition and laser ablation methods.

Characterizations of these materials cover solid-state characterization such as electron microscopy (such as HRTEM and FESEM), various types of spectroscopy (such as FTIR, Photoluminescence, Raman, XPS etc.), and diffraction (such as XRD and light scattering).
